In case you want to make new friends or you’re travelling all by yourself, this is the place to go! The cool thing is that Clandestino is open until late hours. The crowd is young and friendly and each night has a different feel to it. I loved the nachos I ordered and they have a bunch of beer brands for you to pick and choose. The dancefloor was packed and I had such a wild night with the Brazilian guys I met and the Italian friend who was staying in my hostel.

My favorite sport is beer tasting! I’ve been to many places and one of my fondest rituals is trying out beers and keeping the labels. I’ve been to Brazil before, but this was the first time that I tried prime quality draft beer. A local newly-met friend took me to this bar called Devassa in Flamengo. They have a homemade brand of beer! It’s so tasty and rich! Plus the fact that they are really careful with their logo and design. I loved it. If you get the chance try all three of them! I loved the Indian one.

A cozy wooden haven for the true beer enthusiasts! A Brazilian friend told me that the beer at Devassa was simply the best. Apparently they have their own home-made brand of beer (Blonde, Ale, Indian) I tasted them all, and could not put them aside. Devassa is located at the heart of Ipanema, close to other great spots for shopping or chilling. The place was packed with people living out the true carioca lifestyle. A place to have fun after going to the beach. Don't count with parking spots, you won't find it, but other than that, it's a great experience!

Devassa Ipanema is one of the best spots to chill out in Rio! They have their own chopp (lager, red and stout), great snacks and it is also in a good location in Ipanema, which means that you can go for a beer, meet people and later, just go walking through the club.
Devassa Ipanema has a great atmosphere, and the beers are great too. I tried all of them: Loira, Ruiva, Negra and Índia. They have a snack called escondidino - very tasty!
Like Germany, Brazil has really good draft beer, and it's hard to compare one with the other. The other day I went to a bar called Devassa in Jardim Botanico (Botanical Gardens) and this was very good beer. It's good enough to please even the pickiest German bud!

Gotta love this place, really. The finger foods are pretty darn good and they've got sandwiches that'll fill you up until you say uncle; but forget all that for now. Let's focus on the beer. This is by far, without a shadow of doubt, the best beer I've ever had in my life.
I don't know what they put in it but even the foam tastes good! You can choose from four types of brewed beer (India, negra, loira, ruiva, which correspond to the following tastes: Indian, black, blond and red, the last one being my personal favourite). We went over to the Devassa branch in the Leblon neighborhood, nice place too. Just drop everything and head out there pronto.

Brazil's answer to draft beer is what they call chopp, which is what I was enjoying until I went to this place called Devassa. I guess they have several of these pubs all over town. Anyway, the chopp down here overall is great, but I never had anything like Devassa before. They have four different types of brewed beers, and they're all worth checking out.

Barril 1800 is almost an institution in Rio de Janeiro. Because of its localization, in the front of Ipanema beach, or maybe because it's been there for decades receiving everybody with great food and beer and lots of courtesy.
People go there straight from the beach, creating a casual environment. They serve traditional Brazilian dishes in huge amounts of food for great prices. And, last but not least, the sight of Ipanema beach is breathtaking. Don't miss it!

Don't know how these guys do it, but they brew their beer to absolute perfection!
I saw a bunch of these pubs spread all over town when I was down in Brazil, and they all seemed to have a pretty faithful clientele.
We ended up hitting the Ipanema spot most the time, and two of those times we closed the place down! That good!

Rio de Janeiro is very famous for its bar culture. The words 'botequim' or 'boteco' designate small places with freezing beer, lots of people, bad food and very low prices. The genre of place became so strong that a new style of 'boteco' was created, it keeps the popular aura combined with a tiny sophistication. Devassa Bar in Leblon is an exemplar of the hip but cozy boteco, full of young and interesting people, Devassa has its own beer, in different versions: blond, red, black and Indian. I had the blond and found it very special. The menu is another chapter: many yummy finger foods, typical of Brazil. Go feel yourself a real carioca!
